Police say they found a boy concealing a knife on schools campus
The Park City Police Department referred a boy to juvenile court on counts of possession of a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct on Friday, May 5 after, the police said, he threatened a woman staffer at Treasure Mountain Middle School.
The police were called to the middle school at 2:54 p.m. Officers were told that the staffer was walking from Treasure Mountain to the nearby McPolin Elementary School when she was approached by the student, who said he needed to talk to her, according to Lt. Phil Kirk.
Kirk said the student had heard rumors about himself, he wanted them to stop and he approached the staffer. Kirk said the staffer heard what she interpreted to be threats but the police did not have details.
The police found the student, who is reported to be 17 years old, at the nearby Learning Center. When they took him into custody, the police found a butterfly style knife, Kirk said.
The student was released to the custody of his grandmother, Kirk said.
The police normally do not release the names of suspects who are less than 18 years old.
